Firefly card

Hello fellow stamping lovers!  Today I have a little project to share with you.  I was asked to create a lil' something with some wash tape for the Blue Moon Creations Crafting station for the current challenge.  I combined an itty bitty card design with a little bit of washi tape for a cute card with a HUGE sentiment.  It is a super simple card to make and this washi tape I have been hoarding for a long time was calling out to me to be used.


 To make the card I used:

the stamps " Love Bugs" from Blue Moon Creations (retired set)
Sakura gel pens in Yellow and Green
Prima Marketing Washi tape
Staples card stock

I hope this inspires you to make some of your own projects.  Thanks for looking!

Some inspiration for Mother's Day and just because I love flowers

A happy Mother's Day to all the mom's!  I am pleased to celebrate this day as I am the proud mom of two tall and beautiful teenage boys. I am also fortunate to have a mom who is now a great grandmother, and I also have a mother in law.  The three of us share a love of flowers.

Hi, today I have this card I made for Spring time occasions such as Mother's Day and Easter.

I used the stamps "Happy Spring 2014" available here.http://www.bluemooncreation.net/Stamp-Sets.html.

White card base by Recollections (Michaels)
Lavendar and purple card stocks from Staples
Gel Pens by Sakura (neon yellow, pink, green)
Souffle pens by Sakura (green, Lavendar)
Ink by Ranger "Jet Black" Archival
Spray from "Rose Art Dual Action Spray Writers" by Megabrand
Ribbons from Offray

I hope that you are inspired to make some spring time cards for any occasions coming up or as a way to get ahead for next year!  By the way don't forget to "Spring" on over to the Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station (Get Inky!) blog for more fun.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Sunday Fun Fold Technique

Hi, it's time for a new feature over at the Blue Moon Creation Crafting station (here) and today I am showing you how to make a simple Gatefold card that can have stunning results all depending on how you go about decorating  it.  Have fun.

Gatefold card


From a piece of 6” x 12” card stock  measure in 3 inches from the left and 3 inches from the right and make a vertical score mark.  Fold each side in.

I hope that you find this fold simple to do and that it gives you some inspiration to make some fancy folds of your own.
Thanks for stopping by.
